Unless I'm missing something, this is not so hard, is it?  I added an
attribute to your tree to give me something to activate on.

    <C activate="yes"/><!--call template with current() here -->

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" 

<xsl:output method="text"/>

<xsl:template match="*">
  <xsl:if test="./@activate='yes'">
    <xsl:for-each select="ancestor-or-self::*">
      <xsl:call-template name="print-step"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>

<xsl:template name="print-step">
  <xsl:value-of select="name()"/>
  <xsl:value-of select="1+count(preceding-sibling::*)"/>
